    Quoted from pinhead52:

    You can judge a socket by....

    ...No means

    Quoted from Dayhuff:

    If your having to go through all that trouble to make some sort of testing rig then I'd just replace them ....

    Trying to process how splicing a wall plug is more work than replacing 20+ sockets

    Quoted from Dayhuff:

    That is true, but then if your already taking them out of the game and hooking them up on a jig of some sort then why not just replace them?

    I see the confusion now...No you're not removing anything.
    To test the strings all is takes is plug and bare wire/alligator clips.

    The wood block in my pic is for testing bulbs, and us a separate device.
